This small green area adds to the attractiveness of the capital building itself but has nothing special to recommend it. Not even a really good picnic area. Drive by and wave.

Fresh Air due to the large number of trees and Unique architecture evident in the historical buildings make this place a welcome change from the busier San Francisco. Wish we had planned more time to spend here.

We drove around the area looking at the buildings, including the Golden Bridge (straight down the main street). Traffic was light at lunch time on a week day.
